Rep. Marsha Blackburn about Running for President: "I can't believe you don't have to show an I.D."

MSNBC's Chris Matthews took on a congressional birther, Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn, and got the most unbelievable response.

Rep. Blackburn defended the birthers this way:
"As people questioned Barry Goldwater, John McCain..ah, President Obama, people began to say, I can't believe you don't have to show an I.D. or you don't have to show some kind a information to prove who you say you are."
She really thinks that someone just "applies," anonymously, and runs for president? I'm assuming she's unaware of the presidential vetting process?

Rep. Barbara Lee nails the real reason why there is any controversy, racism.

  1. Marsha Blackburn would not know the Constitution if it fell on her head!
    Economic Stimulus. H.R. 5140, the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008, passed 385-35 on January 29, 2008 (Roll Call 25). It would provide about $150 billion in economic stimulus, including $101.1 billion in direct payments of rebate checks (typically $600) to most taxpayers in 2008 and temporary tax breaks for businesses. Creating money out of thin air and then spending the newly created money cannot improve the economy, at least not in the long term. (If it could, why not create even more money for rebates and make every American a millionaire?) The stimulus has no offset and thus increases the federal deficit by the amount of the stimulus because the government must borrow the rebate money. A realistic long-term stimulus can only be achieved by lowering taxes through less government and by reducing regulatory burdens. Marsha Blackburn voted FOR this bill.(Source: The New American – July 21, 2008)
